Good veggie food

Great views no matter what the weather. Sadly the ferry service leaves at 9pm so unable to stay late. Good vegetarian options and good value for money.

I took my mum on a day trip to Kerrera today as she hasn't been well and I wanted to treat her to a nice day out. We had hoped to stop in here for a bit of lunch but didn't realise the place had now closed for the season. There were keys in the door so we did think... More

Ideally you will be staying in the marina otherwise you may be a little rushed as the last ferry back to Oban leaves probably a little earlier than you'd like. That said, just plan ahead and enjoy the great food and service here in this almost "pop-up" restaurant.

We have been here 4 times previously for lunches and dinners when using the Marina and have raved about the food, however this year our seafood was distinctly average and the service the same, less variety than before and not anything better than many cheaper seafood restaurants we used this we. It may be the only restaurant in the marina... More

A really great location on Kerrera Island overlooking Oban . The food is great when you get there, but the biggest drawback is the ferry. It only runs once an hour and only takes 12 people, so if it is full it will come back for you but that takes 20 minutes.The other drawback is that it shuts at 9pm.... More

We had a meal here two years ago and it was very good , attentive service , great seafood and a lovely view across the harbour to Oban.So we booked again this year. I used the contact form on the website and there was no reply. I emailed Oban Marina and they said they would book for me. Again I... More

It took a very long time to get my food and it was soggy but really really dry. Wouldn't go there again.

This was my second visit. The first time I really enjoyed it. This time, not so. It started off badly. The ferry taking us to Kerrera was full, and, as per the restaurant's website, if this is the case another ferry comes straight back over for remaining passengers, and so the 'captain' said she'd be back in 20 minutes. She... More

We sailed to the Waypoint with a friend on one of the very few hot & sunny days we have had this summer and the experience we had was bordering on cringeworthy. Service was slow - actually, we were told that the oven was ‘out’ and that we would have a wait of about half an hour. - This was... More

Well.....I was just so disappointed, travelled all way from south uk, and family took me for a treat, as had been so good, wee boat trip was fun and all looked so good, however it seemed that the chef was trained in the 1980s...as everything was garnished with orange! Starter of king prawns, in ginger and lime came , and... More
